Graph Drawing

7.5 credits

Complex information can be better perceived by using visual representations. Graph Drawing is a way of representing structural information as diagrams of abstract graphs and networks, i.e., of a set of nodes and edges as well as additional information. The aim is to develop algorithms that produce aesthetically appealing drawings! We will discuss drawing algorithms for general (directed and undirected) graphs, but also for special graphs, such as trees, directed acyclic graphs, etc. Graph Drawing is an important subfield of Information Visualization. It is of great practical relevance for many industrial applications, such as software development or analysis of biochemical networks.


Roughly 15 minutes with a bike from the city centre, you will find Linnaeus University’s campus. It is like a small society with the university, student accommodation, and student life. Here you become part of a creative knowledge environment.

What will you come across on an excursion in Växjö – the city of contrasts? You will find good restaurants, a celebrated hockey team, and cozy cafés where you can enjoy a latte with lingonberry flavour. In Växjö, beautiful nature is always just around the corner; the city is surrounded by lakes and forests. Students like the combination of the city centre and the active student life on campus. Your dream of the future starts here!
